Most weeks the MAC power rankings involve me trying to find some way to justify moving teams around on the board.
This week I just couldn’t.
I mean Bowling Green slapped around Toledo and after some choke jobs by Ohio and Miami Kent State leads the MAC East. I just don’t get this conference some times.
So this week I literally randomized the order ( thanks rand() function ) and then tried to justify that.
Here is what I came up with.
|1||BGSU||11||10||They Beat the previous number one team, so there is that|
|2||WMU||4||2||Tied with CMU for the most overall wins of any team in the MAC|
|3||Ohio||2||-1||Because they have not won a MAC title since before we landed on the moon and I feel bad for them|
|4||CMU||9||5||I guess because they are tied with WMU for most wins in the conference (and I also let some CMU beat writer vote?)|
|5||Kent||10||5||Because their internal investigation of the field hockey fiasco cleared them of wrongdoing|
|6||EMU||6||0||Because EMU has been square in the middle of the MAC for 3-4 years|
|7||Akron||12||5||I got nothin.... I can't think of a single reason they should not be in last place|
|8||Toledo||1||-7||Toledo is solid but you don't lose to a bottom three MAC team like that without falling... 6.... errr7 .... yea 7 sports|
|9||Buffalo||7||-2||UB is minus two in MAC play, so why not drop them down two.|
|10||NIU||3||-7||Sure you beat Ohio, but you have the same overall record as Buffalo.|
|11||Miami||5||-6||You blew it! Had a chance to go up on the Bobcats by another game and laid an egg.|
|12||BSU||8||-4||You can never change what happened in 2008.|
